10 Wherefore should the
Where is their God?
let him be known among the heathen in our sight
by the revenging of
the blood of thy servants which is shed.
Who goes to paradise? The
worshipper who saved all his life to take the Hajj, or the terrorist who
kills him at the Hajj because he is too moderate a Moslem? The
important fact of theology is it makes absolute statements about religion
that have a single application. Both men can't go to paradise. One must be
rejected because of sin otherwise sin and forgiveness of sin becomes
meaningless. Islam is in crises, and the militants are setting the agenda.
Islamic theology is moving in support of the militants, and hate for the
Jews and Jew suporters is the measuring standard. Moslem Nationalism is
being replaced with militant Islamic theology. Sin has gone from verbal hate
to any hint of moderation. Islamic Nationalism is now incorporating this
theology into their law making. The Palestinian Authority has already put a
legal death sentence on any Moslem who sells land to the Jews. The Jews have
been effectively purged from all the Islamic nations, and any Moslem who
might indicate compassion for a Jew knows they are signing their own death
certificate should they be exposed. Saudi Arabia has a law that no Jew is
allowed on Saudi soil. Moderation pertaining to the Jews is sin of the worst
sort in this new theology now permeating Islam.
The God of the Bible has a
totally different measurement for sin. The conflict between Islam, and the
God of the Bible is in full play. The Holy Land is the focal point. Islam
feels obligated to force the world not to sin. They challenge the world to
follow their lead. Hitler and the Nazis were the last to try to force this
theology on the world. The Holocaust is a testimonial to their success.
Islamic theology is following where the Nazis left off, and wants the world
to follow them.
The God of the Bible has a different
theology. Dispensational change is how God is going to deal with this latest
challenge to the Bible. This time everything is in place for the coming
Kingdom. For the first time since shortly after the Church age began, the
Jews are back in the Holy Land! This more then any other factor points Bible
students to the nearness of the Kingdom. We are witnessing the end of
Biblical Christianity, and the return of Biblical Judaism. This time
Biblical Judaism, when it comes, will look back to the Messiah, and forward
to His immanent return!
That Great and Terrible Day
17 Let the priests, the ministers of the LORD, weep between the porch and
the altar, and let them say, Spare thy people, O LORD, and give not thine
heritage to reproach, that the heathen should rule over them: wherefore
should they say among the people,
Where is their God?
18 Then will the LORD be jealous for his land, and pity his people.
19 Yea, the LORD will answer and say unto his people, Behold, I will send
you corn, and wine, and oil, and ye shall be satisfied therewith: and
I will no more make
you a reproach among the heathen:
20 But I will remove far off from you the northern army,
and will drive him into a land barren and desolate, with his face toward the
east sea, and his hinder part toward the utmost sea, and his stink shall
come up, and his ill savour shall come up, because he hath done great
21 Fear not, O land; be glad and rejoice: for
the LORD will do great things.
22 Be not afraid, ye beasts of the field: for the pastures of the wilderness
do spring, for the tree beareth her fruit, the fig tree and the vine do
yield their strength.
23 Be glad then, ye
children of Zion, and rejoice in the LORD your God: for he
hath given you the former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down
for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month.
24 And the floors shall be full of wheat, and the fats shall overflow with
wine and oil.
25 And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the
cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I
sent among you.
26 And ye shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise
the name of the LORD your God, that hath dealt wondrously with you: and
my people shall never be ashamed.
27 And ye shall know that
I am in the midst of Israel, and that
I am the LORD your God, and none else: and my people shall
never be ashamed.
28 And it shall come to pass afterward, that
I will pour out my
spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall
prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:
29 And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids
in those days will I
pour out my spirit.
30 And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth,
blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.
31 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into
blood, before the great and the
terrible day of the LORD come.

244 Muslim Pilgrims Die in Hajj Stampede
244 Muslim Pilgrims
Killed in Stampede During Stoning Ritual at Annual Hajj in Saudi Arabia
The Associated Press
Saudi Arabia Feb. 1 — A stampede during a stoning ritual at the
annual Muslim pilgrimage Sunday
killed 244 worshippers and injured hundreds more, Saudi Hajj Minister
Iyad Madani said.
The stampede occurred
during the devil-stoning ritual, the most animated part of
the annual pilgrimage.
Many pilgrims frantically throw
rocks, shout insults or hurl their shoes at pillars representing the
devil acts that are supposed to demonstrate their deep disdain. Clerics
frown upon such actions, saying they are un-Islamic.
Last year, 14 pilgrims were
trampled to death during the ritual and 35 died in a 2001 stampede. In 1998,
180 pilgrims died there.
Oh how the Satanic inspired
gods of men victimize their willing followers. I have seen old woman in
Mexico crawl up stone steps with shredded bloody knees to worship the virgin
Mary. We have all seen the Hindus poke their bodies with long needles in
attempts to please their god. There is no end to this self inflicted pain,
and death demanded by these Satanic gods. Islam is in chaos as different
factions tell their followers to murder each other for Allah. The
Palestinians living in Baghdad were singled out for Moslem attack and murder
this past week. A Moslem mayor in Afghanistan was murdered along with his
three sons by other Moslem terrorists. Only Satan finds joy in human chaos.
Only Satan wants all of God's creation to fail. Beware of gods that want
self flagellation as a means of giving them honor, or a means of righting
wrongs. These are the gods of men, and not the God of the Bible. Every
Easter I'm sickened by those who are physically crucified to honor a false
Christ. It is sickening to see what perverted men do in twisting the Bible
to conform to their lies. It is sickening to read the garbage books that are
promoted as greater revelation then the Bible.
Islam is celebrating the
feast of sacrifice. The faithful willingly follow their false god by
supporting the theology of sacrificing the more fanatical for a so called
religious cause. The pain inflicted on the victims, and the rejoicing over
such pain is pure Satanic. These religions of men must end. It is the real
God of the Bible who will be the final victor. All others must submit, or be
judged for their sin. There is only one single sacrifice that the God of the
Bible condoned, and accepted as valid for sin. Never, either before, or
after Calvary did the God of the Bible demand human sacrifice. Abraham might
be pointed out as the single exception, but the God of the Bible provided a
ram to stand in for Isaac. God loved Abraham, and could not let him do what
He was going to allow happen to His own Son at Calvary. The God of the Bible
loves His creatures. It is Satan who loves foolish sacrifice for any cause,
and any reason. It is foolish men who follow his lead. Two hundred and forty
four foolish followers just went into judgment. They will find their
sacrifice was the sacrifice of fools when compared to Calvary. They followed
the father of lies rather then the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob!

PM Ariel Sharon on Monday has told Ha’aretz that he has given the
order for the IDF to plan the evacuation of
seventeen Gaza Strip
settlements. According to the report that Sharon said a
deal would have to be reached with the
living in the area, but he is working on the assumption
“that in the future there won't
be Jews in the Gaza Strip."
is my intention to carry out an
evacuation - sorry, a
relocation - of
settlements that cause us
problems and of places that we will not hold onto anyway
in a final settlement, like the Gaza settlements," Sharon told the
paper. He was commenting on his
plan for a unilateral “disengagement” from the Palestinian
population, believed to include the
removal of isolated settlement
communities behind defensible temporary borders in the absence of a
final status deal with the Palestinian Authority.
PM Sharon Drops The Bomb: Plans To Expel The Jews Of Gaza
"I have given an order to plan for the
evacuation of 17 settlements in the Gaza Strip." So said Prime Minister
Ariel Sharon today in an interview with Haaretz. Gush Katif residents
say they'll act to topple the Prime Minister.
Why must the Jews always step aside
for the gentile world? Make no mistake that Ariel Sharon's intention is
influenced by the gentiles, and not the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob!
The answer is because these are the times of the gentiles. The destruction
of the First Jewish Temple by Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon was the event that
brought the revelation from God that gave the times of the gentiles a
starting point, and also an ending point. God gave Nebuchadnezzar a secret
dream which only the Biblical Jewish prophet Daniel could, not only repeat,
Today, we approach the end of the
times of the gentiles. The stone made without hands is about to crush the
toes of iron mixed with clay. The entire image Nebuchadnezzar saw crumbles
We await for the rapture of the
truly born again out of the great whore identified as Apostate Christianity.
The very next prophetic event after the rapture is the Great Tribulation the
end of which is Armageddon, and the official end of the times of the
gentiles. Armageddon is the transition day when the times of the gentiles
ends, and the Kingdom age begins. That is the day which is fast approaching.
The Jews back in the Holy Land is the greatest sign that dispensational
change is in process. Soon, it will not be the Jews who must step aside, but
I don't know if Sharon will be
successful in implementing his intensions on the Jews, and the Holy Land? I
do know he is wrong. I do know the day is coming when the gentile influence
over planet earth will come to an end. In that day the Jewish Kingdom will
thrive in the Holy Land, at Jerusalem, and on the Temple Mount. Ezekiel's
Temple is coming, and gentile resistance will be intense. A new leadership
will soon be manifested in Jerusalem. Two Jewish prophets are predicted in
the Bible to minister at Jerusalem. They will not be intimidated, or
influenced by the gentiles! I think they will have the power to build the
last Jewish Temple during the times of the gentiles that will go on into the

Likud MKs Threaten To Vote
17:00 Feb 04, '04
/ 12 Shevat 5764
Likud MKs Edelstein and Erdan are
collecting signatures on
a sharp letter to Prime Minister Sharon in which they threaten
to bring down his government. Arutz-7's Haggai Seri-Levy read the
letter aloud on Arutz-7 only a half-hour after it began to be
"We, MKs in the Likud Knesset faction, request of you
not to make unilateral decisions
to evacuate the legal settlements in Judea, Samaria and Gaza.
We followed you in the elections when this issue was not on the agenda,
and we ask that before a
decision is made, a debate is held in the party institutions.
We express deep concern about
the very possibility that the left-wing parties would join the
government in order to implement this plan. We wish to
hereby make it clear in advance that it will be very difficult for us to
support this plan of yours if it is not discussed first in the party
institutions. In the event that for the purpose of implementing this
plan, you will make changes in the government and
add the Labor Party in order to
support the plan, we will not be able to support these
Seri-Levy adds that though they don't say so in the letter, the
signatories threaten to vote
no-confidence in Sharon as well, if it comes to that. "So far,
only four MKs - Edelstein, Erdan, Kara and Yatom - are signed on the
letter," he said, "but it's only been a half-hour. So let's wait and
see." As of an hour and a half later, six more MKs had signed; MK David
Levy said he would not sign "because its tone is too moderate."
Within the Likud, 21 of the 40 MKs
are said to be against Sharon's withdrawal plan, including Ruby
Rivlin, Naomi Blumental, David Levy, and Leah Ness, as well as Ministers
Shalom, HaNegbi, Katz, Landau and Sheetrit.
Four are undecided,
including Ministers Netanyahu and Naveh and MKs Saar and Avraham.
The plan thus does not currently
appear to have good chances of passing even a Cabinet vote.
MK Yechiel Chazan, the Likud's Yesha representative, has begun contacts
to try to start a split within the party. He is planning to hold a
gathering of supporters very soon, and is
not hiding his intentions to
break up the party if Sharon continues to go through with his plan.
The Yesha Council [Council of Jewish Communities in Judea, Samaria and
Gaza] continues to call on the right-wing parties in the government -
the National Religious Party and the National Union - to quit the
coalition even before Prime Minister Sharon departs for the U.S. and his
meeting with President Bush.
"Quitting after Sharon submits his plan to Bush," said Council leaders Bentzy
Lieberman and Tzviki
"will be too late, as the plan will have already gotten
underway." They call upon the public to realize that Sharon is not
merely playing a media game, "but is truly serious about his plans and
they are on their way to
The liberal Labor Party
in Israel is 100% for implementing this foolish gentile road map. It has
only been the conservative Likud Party that has stood in their way. Now the
formerly conservative Sharon has folded to the pressure of both the gentiles
and the liberals by proposing to displace many of the 250,000 Jewish
settlers now living in Yesha. The backlash is strong, but when the votes are
counted the settlers lose. They are not popular in either Party because they
refuse to get entangled in politics. These are independent fundamental Jews
who put the Bible before the dictates of men. They have few friends on
Jerusalem's capital hill. They lean more to conservatism, but it is the
conservative Sharon who is now selling them out. Their reluctance to get
involved with politics has proved a wise move. They don't depend on the
politicians, but on the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. They are still
blind to their Messiah, but I'm convinced their redemption only awaits the
rapture of born again believers out from the great whore Apostate
Sharon is in deep trouble from
another front. His illegal adventures with a wealthy land owner has put his
entire family in jeopardy. The investigation has just started, but this may
prove the end of the Sharon leadership of the Likud. What is sad is there is
no one in the wings who also would not sell out the settlers for political
advantage. The settlers lose no matter who follows Sharon into office. These
independent fundamental Jewish settlers can only continue trusting in the
impossible. So far, that trust has proven that the choice they made has been
the right choice.
25:1 A Psalm of David.
Unto thee, O LORD, do I lift up my soul.
2 O my God, I trust
in thee: let me not be ashamed, let not mine enemies triumph over me.
3 Yea, let none that wait on thee be ashamed: let them be ashamed which
transgress without cause.
4 Shew me thy ways, O LORD; teach me thy paths.
5 Lead me in thy
truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do
I wait all the day.

Knesset passes first reading of Arutz 7
Zrahiya, Haaretz Correspondent
The Knesset approved Wednesday the first
reading of a government-sponsored bill that would allow
radio station Arutz 7 to compete for a broadcasting license. The first
reading passed by 47 votes to 17.
Opposition lawmakers said the bill was
designed to appease the
settler-run station, which was
shut down several months ago.
Managers and employees of the station were subsequently convicted of
operating a radio station without a license. They were handed
sentences ranging from three to six months.
Communications Minister Ehud Olmert, who initiated the bill, said an
assumption that the legislation was aimed at one specific group was
unfounded. According to Olmert, the law was formulated by top experts from
If passed, the new law will allow the
communications ministry to award broadcast licenses to radio stations that
appeal primarily to specific sectors
of society or those that have a unique characteristic, such as an
alternative language or culture.
The law would also grant to the government powers
to decide which targeted stations
are licensed, in accordance with demographic requirements.

What is going on in Israel is
the the government bureaucracy is run mostly by the liberals. It is much
like America was before fox and conservative radio. The liberals do not want
their bias control over the radio threatened. They do not want any voice of
criticism allowed. It is a weak argument to say if we let the conservatives
have a voice then we open the door to a neo-Nazi radio station? I just don't
think that will happen. There has to be an audience first, and Arutz 7 has
that audience that puts the knees of the liberals a shaking.
I would agree that Arutz is a voice
for the independent fundamental Jewish settler movement, but it is too big a
leap the say it is run by the Jewish settlers. They cover a lot of
conservative issues that go beyond just the settlers. I'm glad the tide has
changed, and Arutz is getting justice rather then prejudicial treatment from
The liberal media is not the
place to go if you want to learn what God is doing in the world today. That
is not a newsworthy story, or it is information that can only be released
with a liberal spin. I have great hopes that as God brings more and more
pressure on the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount that the truth
will be reported. The establishment of Arutz 7 radio will go a long way to
allowing the truth to be filtered out of competitive reporting rather then
the one sided reporting now being offered to the Jews of the Holy Land.

Moscow Metro Explosion Caused By Suicide Bomber -Interfax
(AP)--The explosion that hit the
Moscow metro Friday was carried out by a
suicide bomber, the Interfax news agency reported, citing police
Authorities are still investigating the explosion to see if it was an
act of terrorism, said
Kirill Mazurin, spokesman for Moscow police. He said the death toll
could be as high as 30.
Earlier, the Emergency Situations Ministry said the explosion killed
at least 22 people and wounded 30.
The same extreme type terrorism
aimed at the Jewish people in Israel is menacing the Russian people also.
The Chechnyan separatists are of the same animalistic mind set as the
Palestinians. Their goal is to establish an Islamic Republic North of the
Caucasus Mountains. It is from the North that the Ezekiel 38 &39 invasion of
Israel is prompted. What happens North of the Caucasus Mountains should make
every Bible reader wary.
We are witnessing brutality of the
worst sort all associated with Islam, and as a direct challenge to the
Bible. Islam has put the Koran above the Bible as the book to which they
give their allegiance. Their brutality is justified, and their defiance of
the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob is glorified. They are intent on making
the writings of Mohammad higher then the revelatory writings of the Jewish
prophets. This conflict is heading for a single solution in the Holy Land,
at Jerusalem, and on the Temple Mount.
I suspect that once the
mandate to build Ezekiel's Temple is given it will stir Islam into one final
invasion of Israel. The Bible is very clear in Ezekiel 39 that this invasion
ends in complete disaster for the invaders. God will end what the beasts of
Islam start. The end is horrific with multitudes dead in the fields, and on
the mountains of Israel. It will be the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob who
will manifest such wrath on these mindless animals who attack innocent
civilians with such conscienceless hate. Their bodies will be fodder for the
real beasts of the field, and fowls of the air. Islam has a beginning with
the writings of Mohamed (the Koran), and an end in Ezekiel 39. Islam will
join all the other great cultures before it that defied the Bible. It is
bound for the dung heap of human history.
The Coming Great Islamic Sacrifice
17 And, thou son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD; Speak unto every
and to every beast of
the field, Assemble yourselves, and come;
gather yourselves on every side to my sacrifice that I do sacrifice for you,
even a great sacrifice upon the mountains of Israel, that ye may eat flesh,
and drink blood.
18 Ye shall eat the flesh of the mighty, and drink the blood
of the princes of the earth, of rams, of lambs, and of goats, of bullocks,
all of them fatlings of Bashan.
19 And ye shall eat fat till ye be full, and drink blood till ye be drunken,
of my sacrifice which I have sacrificed for you.
20 Thus ye shall be filled at my table with horses and chariots, with mighty
men, and with all men of war, saith the Lord GOD.
21 And I will set my
glory among the heathen, and all the heathen shall see my judgment
that I have executed, and my hand that I have laid upon them.
22 So the house of Israel shall know that I am the LORD their
God from that day and forward.

CHIEF ATTACKED IN LOCAL CLASH
beat up the Palestinian police chief at police headquarters in Gaza
City on Thursday, sparking a gun
battle that wounded at least 13 people, Palestinian sources said.
Police said in a statement the incident
was a failed bid to assassinate
the police chief, Major General Ghazi al-Jabali, who escaped the
gun battle unhurt. But Palestinians affiliated with the PSS denied this,
saying he was only beaten severely. Other reports said he escaped
Accounts differ as to what happened.
"A group of lawless individuals of the
lowest level tried to assassinate the founder of the Palestinian
national police, sent by some
parties that do not want security and peace for the homeland,"
police said in a statement.
Sources said that the assailants were
members of the PA Preventive Security Service in Gaza acting on behalf
of Mohammed Dahlan, the former head of the service. Jabali is
a personal appointee of
Palestinian Authority Chairman Yasser Arafat.
Dahlan was frequently
at odds with Arafat during his tenure as minister for security affairs
under Palestinian Prime Minister Mahmoud Abbas, and
views Jabali as a rival.
The Gaza PSS is currently headed by a close associate of Dahlan's and is
still considered his power base.
Samir Mashharawi, a senior Fatah leader in
Gaza, said "there was no assassination attempt. What happened was that
four members of the Preventive Security Service who were
on a cordial visit to
Jabali were involved in a brawl that developed into a gun battle."
He said the police know the identities of
the four assailants and that an investigation is under way to determine
the reason for the shooting.
not the first time members of
different Palestinian security services have clashed, nor is it
the first time such clashes have involved associates of Dahlan facing
off against associates of Arafat.
Jabali, who arrived with the PLO in 1994,
is one of the most controversial figures in the PA security
establishment. Last year Arafat
fired him following allegations that he had abused his power to
accumulate a fortune
and was involved in a series of

sophisticated gentile world can't see what they are releasing on the Jewish
people of Israel? I used to think phrases like "thugs and gangsters run the
government" were extremist views going too far in describing the opposition,
but I really think it is true of the Palestinians. It is self-inflicted
because of their hate for the Jews. The Palestinian Islamic Arabs will only
tolerate those of the most
animalistic hate for Jews to represent them. The fruit of such hatred is
that the character of those who possess such hate makes them treat their own
kind with the same behavior. The Palestinian Arabs have sown to the wind,
and are now reaping the whirlwind!
Now, the gentile world wants the
Jewish People of Israel to be victimized with this whirlwind forever. The
gentiles would decree a State made up of these wild animals to forever exist
in the midst of the Holy Land. I can't help but think this is a slap in the
face to the God of the Bible who has always said upon the whole planet this
is the only place He has said would be His. Now, the gentiles show their
contempt for the Biblical God by trying to permanently place the worst
culture on planet earth into His Holy Land.
10 For he seeth that wise men die, likewise the fool and the
brutish person perish,
and leave their wealth to others.
11 Their inward
thought is, that their houses shall continue for ever, and
their dwelling places to all generations; they
call their lands
after their own names.
12 Nevertheless man being in honour abideth not: he is like the beasts that
13 This their way is
their folly: yet their posterity approve their sayings. Selah.
14 Like sheep they are laid in the grave; death shall feed on them; and the
upright shall have
dominion over them in the morning; and their beauty shall
consume in the grave from their dwelling.
15 But God will
redeem my soul from the power of the grave: for he shall receive me.

Media Confusion and Conflicting Headlines
16:17 Feb 08, '04
/ 16 Shevat 5764
Some of the largest media outlets in Israel are
tripping over themselves in
their rush to report on an
"imminent" evacuation of Gaza - so much so that
today's front pages of the
two leading papers, usually clones
of each other, herald diametrically opposing scenarios.
Yediot Acharonot, Israel's
largest paper, blares out, "Israel
Will Not Destroy the Communities to be Evacuated," adding that
Arab refugees will be able to live
in the houses that remain. This is followed by a two-page spread of
homes in Gush Katif with a large caption, "Gush Katif Before the
Evacuation," and sub-headlined, "The
luxurious villas and factories in the settlements won't be destroyed after
Maariv, on the other hand,
which also contains several references on its first three pages implying the
certainty of a retreat, evacuation, and expulsion from Jewish Gaza, has a
totally different headline: "We Will
Destroy Every House and Greenhouse in the Withdrawal," it reads,
quoting a source "close to Sharon."
in the Prime Minister's Bureau say that
neither of the two reports have any
It will be recalled that in 1982, after Israel withdrew from approximately a
dozen communities in northern Sinai
as well as the city of Yamit, under the supervision of then-Defense Minister
Ariel Sharon, barely a building was
David Banjo, who has lived in N'vei Dekalim for 15 years, told
Arutz-7 today that in truth,
"neither of those headlines is correct. I invite everyone to come
visit here and see that the true headlines are being made here, in our
everyday lives. It's true that Sharon is capable of carrying out his plans,
but notice that he has said several different things in the past few days: first
a unilateral retreat, then a referendum, then he talks about going to new
elections, etc. The reality of life in Gush Katif is that we are very
strong, and we have gone through a lot - mortar shells every day, talk of
uprooting for years, and more.
We have overcome them, and we will
overcome this as well."
It is sad that the conflict
between these two cloned liberal rags should develop over whether the
government will, or will not destroy the homes of the independent
fundamental Jewish settlers of Yesha after they are ejected. It is almost
joyful toying with these families who put all their hopes, and efforts to
serve the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob by being settlers. The liberal
Jews display the same vindictiveness as the animalistic Palestinians. They
can't wait to "rub it in" as they anticipate the first ejection of these
settlers whom they hate for their conservative religious position. I can't
imagine what is worse: the destruction of the home built with joyful
expectations, or the home given to a potential terrorist to enjoy while he
plans to kill Jewish civilians? This is a terrible prospect to be so
gleefully speculated before the public.
Today, we live in a world of sin.
The American public was confronted with this truth at the Super Bowl half
time show. Whenever God manifests His Will there is conflict. Righteousness
does not fit into the world's way of thinking. It is right for Jews to
occupy and conquer Judah, Samaria, and Gaza during
this miraculous third entrance into the Holy Land. The opposition is great,
but the God of the Bible is greater. However, refusal to do what the LORD
commands brings terrible consequences. In 1967 the LORD opened the good land
for the Jews to occupy and conquer. It is now 37 years later, and the Land
remains filled with the heathen Islamic Palestinian Arabs. The time is
short, and the consequences grave. I only wonder how all this is going to
end? I know God will win, but I wonder how much the sin of compromise will
hinder the ultimate victory?
The Good Land
13 Know for a certainty that the
LORD your God will no more drive out any of these nations
from before you; but they shall be snares and traps unto you, and scourges
in your sides, and thorns in your eyes, until ye perish from
off this good land which the LORD your God hath given you.
14 And, behold, this day I am going the way of all the earth: and ye know in
all your hearts and in all your souls, that
not one thing hath
failed of all the good things which the LORD your God spake concerning you;
all are come to pass unto you, and not one thing hath failed
15 Therefore it shall come to pass, that as all good things are come upon
you, which the LORD your God promised you; so shall the LORD bring upon you
all evil things, until he have destroyed you from off this
good land which the LORD your God hath given you.

Report: Al-Qaida has obtained tactical
By Yoav Stern, Haaretz Correspondent, and Haaretz Service
have possessed tactical nuclear weapons for about six years, the
London-based Al-Hayat newspaper reported Sunday.
The Arabic daily reported that sources
close to Al-Qaida said Osama bin Laden's group
bought the nuclear weapons from
Ukrainian scientists who were visiting Kandahar, Afghanistan, in
The report has not been
However, the sources said Al-Qaida doesn't intend to use the weapons against
American forces in Muslim countries, "due to the serious damage" it could
cause. But that decision is subject to change, the sources said, if Al-Qaida
"is dealt a serious blow that won't leave it any room to maneuver."
The possibility of detonating the
nuclear devices on American soil was also raised in the report, although no
details were given.
The sources were quoted as saying that Al-Qaida actvists have hidden the
weapons - each of which is about the
size of a suitcase - in "a safe place."
Kandahar was the stronghold of the Taliban, which kept Afghanistan under
tight religious restrictions until the United States attacked it in
retaliation for the September 2001 attacks.
In the years after the collapse of the Soviet Union, serious concern arose
in the West over the possibility that nuclear technology and weapons could
spread to other groups, in part due to the difficult economic situation in
the former communist lands. Several reports of the nuclear arsenal in the
former Soviet Union in the 1990s indicated that a
few dozen nuclear explosive devices
had disappeared. One of the theories was that the devices
disappeared in Ukraine, which claims
that it handed over all its nuclear weapons to Russia.
This report is clearly
identified as unconfirmed, but what is true is that
several small nuclear tactical devices are missing, or at the least
unaccounted. This world should be thankful the Biblical God is in absolute
control, or such reports would drive us into hopeless depression. The
probability of one of these animalistic terrorist groups getting a nuclear
bomb is real. What is not probable, but certain is that they would use it
with conscienceless vengeance on whoever they choose. The depravity of such
groups is not new, but the horror they can release is unique to our
Islam is thirsting for a victory,
and the focus is more and more turning to little Israel. It seems to me that
technology has finally brought the world to the brink of Armageddon. The
nuclear age is now coming into the reach of the fanatics who have no fear of
man or God. The fear of the LORD is a primary feature of the Bible that has
little influence on these cultures of hate. They ignore the Bible replacing
it with the Koran. Allah becomes a god for sexual perverts rewarding the
most depraved behavior. There will be no hesitation when one of these
fellows gets the opportunity to press the button. Sin filled mankind is on
the brink of self destruction. Only the God of the Bible holds back the
inevitable so that a few more may be saved. The time is short. The times of
the gentiles is coming to an
end. The Church age dispensation is about to end. The wrath of God is about
to be manifested such as has never been administered toward any other
generation. Grace and mercy ignored, or trivialized by this generation will
be its downfall. Wrath will reestablish the fear of the LORD to the creature
that refuses to go to the Bible for the solution to sin.
The fear of the Lord is the
only way to overcome the fear of evil!

Jewish Gaza: Today and in History
17:57 Feb 10, '04 /
18 Shevat 5764
A victory over both terrorism and schemes to uproot the Jews of Gaza
was celebrated in Kfar Darom today. Eliezer and Chana Bart held the brit -
ritual circumcision - of their
week-old son today, naming him Amichai [My Nation Lives] Yisrael.
Chana is wheelchair-bound and paralyzed in the lower half of her body,
following a terrorist shooting
attack two years ago. Among her first concerns at the time was
whether she would be able to bear more children. Doctors closely tracked her
pregnancy, fearing that she would not be able to feel the onset of labor
pangs. The family has seven other children, and the joy in Kfar Darom today
was complete. Baby Amichai
was born the day after Sharon's bombshell announcement of his plan to expel
the nearly 8,000 Jews of Gaza from their homes.
Contrary to popular perception,
Gaza has long been a Jewish area, and is in fact included in the
Biblical Land of Israel; a dispute among traditional Jewish commentators
exists only regarding the area west of El Arish in northern Sinai. It is
mentioned as land that should have
been conquered by Joshua; was home to Jews during the times of the Hasmoneans
and the redaction
of the Mishna; and its Jewish
population was strong enough to withstand an attempt by Constantine in the
4th century to build a Christian church there. More recently,
Jews lived there from 1885 until
World War I, and a renewed Jewish community remained there until the Muslim
pogroms of 1929. Kfar Darom was established there in 1946, lasting
only until the War of Independence two years later, and in 1973, Netzer
Hazani - the first of 17 Jewish communities that now exist in Gaza - was
The media spin is
that the Gaza Strip is Arab territory, and the Jewish settlers in the Gaza
are the troublemakers. The truth is Jewish heritage in the Gaza goes back to
Biblical times, but since when has the media been interested in the truth?
The God of the Bible is on record as saying the Gaza is the inheritance of
the Tribe of Judah, but since when has the world cared about what the God of
the Bible says?
The heathen remnant of this
miraculous third Biblical entrance of the Jews into the Holy Land are also
going to perish as all others did before Jewish sovereignty in the past. For
three transgressions and for four the present Islamic Arab Palestinians have
It may be a strange thing
for me to write about the destruction of the heathen in the Holy Land when
all the news is proclaiming their victory. It would seem I got it all wrong?
The gentile road map is reported as if it is done, and Babylon the Great of
antichrist fame is in chaos. It is certainly within my capabilities to get
it all wrong, but the Bible has it right. The best I can do is speculate on
whether the news of today is coming into compatibility with what Biblical
I know the heathen of Gaza will
again suffer for three transgressions and for four. Today will not be soon
enough from my perspective. God obviously dose not move according to my
personal feelings. There is a time for longsuffering filled with mercy and
grace, but there also is a time of judgment. God is clear that judgment is
coming to planet earth. When it comes, it will center in the Holy Land, at
Jerusalem, and on the Temple Mount. That time is close at hand. I feel it in
The Remnant of the Heathens will Perish

Earthquake Hits Israel
17:32 Feb 11, '04 /
19 Shevat 5764
An earthquake rocked most of Israel at 10:15 this morning,
and was felt from the north to the northern Negev. One worker was lightly
hurt when he fell off scaffolding, and only a handful of other minor
injuries were reported. Cracks were
reported to have formed in some buildings - including the Knesset,
where the main session was postponed for two hours until after engineers
checked the building.
The epicenter of the earthquake - first thought to be
4.5 on the Richter scale, but
later reported as a moderately-heavy
5 - is thought to be in the
northern Dead Sea.
Popular weatherman Danny Roop captured the feelings of most Israelis when he
said, "Actually, what does it
matter whether it was 4 or 5? The main thing is that all of us really felt
it quite strongly."
Two buildings in the Tel Aviv area were reported to have partially
collapsed, but these reports were soon found to be based on false alarms.
Phone systems in the Tel Aviv area did collapse for a short while, however,
due to heavy usage immediately after the quake.
In Ein Gedi,
close to the Dead Sea shore, nothing more serious than falling
objects was reported. The shaking of
the earth was felt in Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, and even in Egypt.
Officials in the Education Ministry, after consultation with Seismological
Institute personnel, decided shortly before 11 AM that, because of the fear
of aftershocks, all pupils must be kept outside their school buildings.
Regular studies resumed shortly after noon, however. Conflicting reports
were heard as to whether aftershocks could be expected.
In Hevron, the students of
Yeshivat Shavei Hevron did not immediately leave their building, as they thought
at first that the shaking was the result of a terrorist bombing. When
it was ascertained that it was in fact an earthquake, the students gathered
outside the yeshiva and recited the traditional blessing of "Who Performs an
Act of Creation," and then evacuated to the nearby Avraham Avinu
The US Geological Survey says that
several thousand shocks with magnitudes of about 4.5 or greater occur each
year around the world.
The last major calamitous earthquake in Israel occurred in
July 1927. Centered
in Jericho, it killed several
hundred people and left thousands homeless. It was estimated at 6.2 on
today's Richter scale, or some 40 times stronger than today's quake. The
last major earthquake to affect Israel was in
1995; it was centered under
the Red Sea, about 70
kilometers south of Eilat, and caused only very minor structural damage.
Experts have been warning for years
that Israel is due for another major earthquake in the coming years
or decades. Earthquake scholar Dr. Ron Avni of Be'er Sheva University told
Arutz-7's Moshe Priel that the feared quake could reach 7 on the Richter
scale - releasing well over 900
times more energy than today's shake. "It's true," Avni said, "that
Israel started, a few years ago, to prepare for a quake, including plans to
strengthen threatened buildings, but unfortunately the work has stopped."
The prophet Zechariah
foretells a cataclysmic earthquake in the Land of Israel when the Messiah
comes to the Mount of Olives outside Jerusalem. The mountain shall be split
down the middle from east to west, forming an enormous valley to which
people shall flee.
There are thousands of earthquakes
around the world every year. It is not until the ground moves from under
your feet that the fear of the LORD gets applied in a very personal way.
There is something about terra firma moving that crushes all our feelings of
security. There is no place to run when the earth is shaking. It may be wise
to run out of a building, but there is no feeling of security while the
street is still shaking under your feet.
There is purpose in everything
God does. Earthquakes in the Holt Land should always awaken our attention.
It is no coincidence that this earthquake should center near the Dead Sea
where Sodom and Gomorrah once stood. The message is clear. God does judge
evil, and that judgment is absolute.
There are Jews in Israel who are
awake. They look to the Bible, and see God uses things like earthquakes to
accomplish His promises. They know God promised them a Messiah, and are
reminded of those promises when contemplating the purpose behind this latest
The Jews have long been persecuted
by Apostate Christianity. Jesus means hateful treatment to them because
their exposior to most of the Christian Denominations has been nothing other
then hate. The denominations promote the false doctrine of substitution
theology where the Christians get all the future blessings specifically
promised to the Jews. It is no wonder Jesus has a bad connotation to the
Jews. It is going to be a great awakening when God opens Jewish eyes to the
Biblical Christ rather then the Christ of the Christian Denominations. The
Jews are going to find that a remnant of Christian fundamentalists have been
hated by the denominations, and main stream Christianity as much as they
have. It is the fundamentalists who have consistently stood up against the
apostasy of the Roman
Catholic Church. It is the fundamentalists who consistently opposed the
false doctrine of the Charismatics. It is the fundamentalists who
consistently warned against the lukewarm Evangelical movement that God has
already said He will spew from His mouth.
Main stream Christianity has gone
the wrong direction, and the Biblical Jesus is being wrongly presented to
the world. Soon, the Jews will open their hearts to the Biblical Jesus. They
will understand grace, and will know why absolute judgment must be
administered before their Jewish Kingdom can come.
6 When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying,
Lord, wilt thou at
this time restore again the kingdom to Israel?
7 And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons,
which the Father hath put in his own power.
8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you:
and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and
in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
9 And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld,
he was taken up; and
a cloud received him out of their sight.
10 And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two
men stood by them in white apparel;
11 Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven?
this same Jesus,
which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye
have seen him go into heaven.
12 Then returned they unto Jerusalem from the
mount called Olivet,
which is from Jerusalem a sabbath day's journey.
I just heard the crack in the
Knesset Building was in the ceiling right above where Prime Minister Ariel
Sharon sits. I only wonder if it was enough to awaken the fear of the Lord
in this secular Jewish politician? I heard a second crack appeared above the
doorway used by the Prime Minister when he exits the building.
It seems to me this is more then
coincidence at a time when Sharon is selling out the independent fundamental
Jewish settlers of Yesha!

Suha Arafat says Israeli prime
minister behind reports of alleged bank transfers to her
Thursday February 12, 2004
BEIRUT, Lebanon (AP) The wife
of Palestinian leader
Yasser Arafat said
Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon was behind reports of a probe by
French prosecutors into alleged transfers totaling millions of
dollars to bank accounts she holds, a newspaper reported Thursday.
The preliminary inquiry, opened by the Paris prosecutor's office in
October, is looking into the alleged transfer of
$11.4 million to Suha
Arafat's accounts at the Arab Bank and at French bank BNP between July
2002 and September 2003, French judicial officials have said.
The probe was first reported by a weekly satirical newspaper, Le
Canard Enchaine, on Wednesday.
In a phone interview with
Suha Arafat from Paris,
home to the Palestinian first lady, she told the Al-Hayat daily
that Sharon was spreading ``the malevolent press leaks'' to cover up a
bribery scandal that could force him out of office....
Arafat told Al-Hayat
that the money she receives is sent to her and spent legally.
In the published interview, she did not specify how much she has
received nor did she reveal the amount under investigation.
``What's strange about the Palestinian president sending any amount
of money to his family and his wife who cares for Palestinian interests
abroad?'' Arafat said in the interview.
``All this money has come, and is coming, in a legal way and the way
it's spent is legal,'' she added. ``My husband and I are ready to
respond to any questioning regarding the source of this money and they
way it was spent.''
French officials have stressed the investigation is only in its
preliminary stages and that police are not involved. Nor has a full
investigation been ordered, since the inquiry has not determined that
the alleged funds came from illicit sources a necessity if prosecutors
are to file any charges of money laundering, French officials have said.
The investigation originated
from a Bank of France inspection of the Arab Bank. The Bank of
France found that nearly
$1.27 million was allegedly transferred monthly
from Switzerland to Suha
Arafat's accounts in Paris, French judicial officials have said.
The Bank of France alerted the watchdog Banking Commission, which in
turn alerted the Paris
prosecutor's office in September, according to those officials.
They said that Tracfin, a government organization that collates
information about money laundering, confirmed the Bank of France's
suspicions about the alleged transfers.
1.2 million every month
is a good figure to picture the next time you see the poverty of the Islamic
Arab Palestinians. It is not ironic that Suha should say it is all the Jew's
fault, and blame this revelation on the Jewish Prime Minister. Every time
Palestinians get caught doing something wrong they always blame it on the
Jews. The suicide bombers are blamed on the Jews, and the sorry media runs
with the false story. What is sad is that the majority of Palestinians
really believe it is all the fault of Israel. They really believe that
should the earth be ethnically cleansed of all Jews it would solve all the
major problems. They believe the world agrees with them by what the media
Reality says the problem is greed,
and as long as the Palestinians elect animalistic Jewish hate mongers, they
will be victimized by this kind of excessive exploitation. Arafat and his
cronies would be exploiting everyone gullible enough to follow whether the
Jews are present or not. He is able to accomplish this by promoting hate as
the greater criteria then ethics. The Palestinian people deserve exactly
what they have.
The next time the news media talks
about the victimization of the Palestinians think 1.2 million every month
rather then the common story that it is the Jews.
Sharon is facing his
own problems with greed. He does not have the majority of the Jews willing
to wink at this kind of indirection. Greed may well do to Sharon what all
the suicide bombers could not. It will be interesting to watch how truth is
reacted to by these two cultures. In the end it will be the God of the Bible
who makes the crucial judgment on all greed and indiscretion. It will be the
judgment of God, and not men that will make the eternal fate of all men. At
that judgment both Sharon and Arafat will stand as equals. There will be no
respect of persons on that day. Only those written down in the book of life
will be redeemed from such one sided standard. Only those clothed in the
righteousness of the lamb will be exempt from the judgmental contrast of the
individual compared to the absolutely pure and holy God of the Bible. In
such a judgment both Arafat and Sharon are found lacking.

Secret EU Findings: European Donations To P.A. Were
Used For Terrorism
15:35 Feb 13, '04
/ 21 Shevat 5764
A secret report prepared by the
European Union's Anti-Fraud Office (OLAF)
concludes that tens of
millions of dollars in humanitarian aid donated by the EU to the Palestinian
Authority were actually used for terrorism against Israel.
Remarkably, the conclusions are based on
papers that Israel discovered almost
two full years ago, during Operation Defensive Shield, and which it
presented to the world immediately afterwards.
The German weekly Die Welt reported this week that
has finally accepted the Israeli claims that PA terror organs are using
millions of EU
aid dollars to subsidize terror by Fatah-Tanzim and even Hamas. OLAF
representatives recently visited Israel to personally verify the
authenticity of PA documents found by Israeli forces during the IDF's
month-long anti-terror offensive of April 2002.
The documents, put on display in
Jerusalem way back on April 11, 2002, include some with
Arafat's signature approving
expenses to cover terror activities for 11
different terrorist leaders. Also among them are documents showing
that the Orient House - PLO
headquarters in Jerusalem - served as a center for terrorist activities,
payments to terrorists' families, Fatah membership forms, an itemized report
on terrorist activities in Jerusalem, PA salary slips for Orient House
officials, proof of ties between the PA and Israeli-Arabs, and much more.
documents were presented to
EU Commissioner Chris Patten
last year, but he did not accept the Israeli conclusions. Recently,
however, in response to increasing pressure from EU Parliament Members, he
ordered OLAF to investigate the accusations - and they found that the
documents are in fact genuine and truly prove that
the humanitarian aid was diverted to
terror organizations. These conclusions, not yet publicized, were
reported in Die Welt....
Attorney Nitsana Darshan-Leitner, director of Shurat HaDin and the family's

the EU aid to the Palestinian Authority must cease as well. If not for the
reckless EU funding to the PA, hundreds of Israeli victims would still be

OLAF has not denied the Die Welt report, but rather protested its

investigation into the PA spending is continuing.
It is nothing new for Israel to
see overwhelming proof of Islamic Palestinian governmental sponsored
terrorism, and see the world just stonewall. Politics always takes
precedents over the truth when Europe is dealing with the Jews. It should be
no wonder that Israel knows they will never get a fair shake when dealing
with either the EU, or the UN. The Palestinians close their eyes to the
corruption of Arafat, and now it is known the EU has closed it's eyes for
the last two years. Just as the Islamic Palestinians did nothing, but blame
Israel for the revelation of Arafat's domestic corruption, so also I expect
the EU will do nothing substantial about it's now blatant support of Islamic
I grew up in Chicago, and as a kid I
knew that the downfall of Big Al Capone was not due to all the people he
murdered; But, his financial indiscretions were what did him in. The people
of Chicago had enough, and it was not until they pressured the politicians
that Capone was put away. It appears
nether the Palestinians, or
the Europeans have had enough of Arafat! He will continue his evil ways
using his "tongue in cheek" governmental leadership position to torture the
Jews just for being Jewish. It seems obvious the Europeans have willingly
supported Arafat's actions for the last two years, and probably suspected
the same much longer. Blaming the Jews for everything keeps Arafat in power.
Blaming God for keeping His promise to the seed of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob
is the truth behind all this blame hatred against the Jewish people.
The God of the Bible is hardening the hearts of
those who are about to be judged! The truth of what is in their hearts is
being exposed so all the world can see. The end of gentile influential
dominance over The Promised Land, and planet earth is near.

I just got out of the hospital, and
am a little shaky. Thanks for bearing with my absence these last few days. I
hope my first returning comments won't make you as sick as it does me....
Thinking about what I just said let me reconsider. I hope it does make you
as sick as it does me! I didn't publish this page for the milk toast lovey
doveies. A right understanding of the Bible should make all of this
generation of Christians sick! Main stream Christianity is going the wrong
way, and hardly anyone says a thing about it. Well, I'm sick of it, and am
saying something! I know the real enemies of the Biblical Christ are the
Hollywood crowd. The Jews could never even come close to their kind of hate
for purity and holiness.

Mel Gibson's father says Holocaust exaggerated
February 19, 2004 - 12:23PM
A week before the United States release of Mel Gibson's controversial
movie, The Passion of the
Christ, the filmmaker's
father has repeated claims the
Holocaust was exaggerated.
Hutton Gibson's comments, made in a telephone interview with New York
radio talk show host Steve Feuerstein, come at an
awkward time for the
actor-director who has been trying to deflect
criticism from Jewish groups
that his film might inflame anti-Semitic sentiment.
In his interview on WSNR radio's Speak Your Piece, to be broadcast on
Monday, Hutton Gibson, argued
that many European Jews counted as death camp victims of the Nazi regime
had in fact fled to countries like Australia and the United States.
"It's all -- maybe not
all fiction -- but most of it is," he said, adding that
the gas chambers and crematoria
at camps like Auschwitz would not have been capable of exterminating so
"Do you know what it takes to get rid of a dead body? To cremate it?"
he said. "It takes a litre
of petrol and 20 minutes. Now, six million of them?
Germans) did not have the gas to do it. That's why they lost the war."
Gibson's father caused a furore last year when he made similar
remarks in a New York Times article.
In a television interview with Diane Sawyer this week,
Mel Gibson accused the Times of
taking advantage of his father, and he warned Sawyer against
broaching the subject again.
my father. Gotta leave it alone Diane. Gotta leave it alone," Gibson
said, while offering his own perspective on the Holocaust.
"Do I believe that there were concentration camps where defenceless
and innocent Jews died cruelly under the Nazi regime? Of course I do;
absolutely," he said. "It was an atrocity of monumental proportion."
During his lengthy radio interview, Hutton Gibson, 85, said
Jews were out to create "one
world religion and one world government" and outlined a conspiracy
theory involving Jewish bankers, the US Federal Reserve
and the Vatican, among others.
The Passion, which gets its US release on February 25, purports to be
a faithful and graphic account of Christ's last 12 hours on earth.
Jewish leaders who have attended advance screenings have voiced
concerns that its portrayal of the Jews' role in Christ's execution
could stir up anti-Semitic feeling.
remember seeing a documentary about Auschwitz. They asked some of the older
folks who lived along the rail route what they remembered about the one way
cattle car loads of Jews who passed their homes day after day. One old
babushka covered Catholic grandma said it all. She claimed she could hear
the Jews crying out to Mother Mary for help, but from her perspective it was
now too late for them. That attitude is alive and well ready to burst out on
the world again.
I have a big problem with The
Passion of the Christ! It used to be that you needed a testimony to speak to
others about the Christ of the Bible. Fundamental missionaries were held to
the highest standards, and should they ever slip, even once, they were out.
They could go sell cars, but they could never represent the Lord Jesus
Christ as part of any reputable organization or society representing Christ.
Today, we have a Roman Catholic drug user who openly brags he is addicted to
everything representing the Catholic Christ on screen, and doing an
acceptable evangelistic work for mainstream Evangelical Christianity. The
old independent fundamentalists are turning over in their graves at what
this generation of Christians find acceptable.
The Hollywood crowd has been eyeing
all the money the TV Charismatics have been accumulating, and the Janet
Jackson promoters want a piece of the pie. These porno producers have
noticed how gullible these foolish Christians have become. They know if they
say the right words they can lead them into their dens of iniquity making
their children think it is all right to pay out big bucks to Hollywood
rather then give it to the few independent fundamental missionaries who
still stand for Christ maintaining a responsible testimony of real love and
compassion for Jew and gentile.
am literally sick at how readily main stream Christianity has accepted this
new method of evangelization. Only the Jews are protesting what they see as
a resurrection of anti-Semitism rising out of this unholy method of
awakening Christian passion!
If I can make a personal prediction,
I expect a run this Easter on men who will be publicly crucified in Catholic
dominated countries. I will also predict that the God of the Bible will hold
every Christian who gives money to these Hollywood manipulators as
responsible for the real results that come out of this unholy method of

The Jerusalem Connection
14:58 Feb 20, '04 /
28 Shevat 5764
Mount and the Western Wall saw several Heaven-entreating
events yesterday and last night, as the People of Israel continue to
manifest the connection between
their ages-old faith and the current political climate. At 4 PM
Thursday, over 5,000 people participated in a
Western Wall prayer rally for the
nullification of the decree to give away Jewish Gaza and expel nearly 8,000
Jews from their homes. Leading the prayers were former Chief Rabbis
Mordechai Eliyahu and Avraham Shapira.
Immediately afterwards, thousands of people
took part in the now-traditional
monthly March Around
the Temple Mount Gates. Rabbi Eliyahu took part as well, for
the first time. The participants at this increasingly-popular event
express their desire and demand to
enter and pray at the holy site by circling the Temple Mount,
and stopping to recite a Psalm,
sing, and play music at each of the gates.
Towards midnight, close to 1,000 people, led by Rabbi Yehuda Lyon of Netanya,
crowded into the tunnel to the west of the Western Wall plaza for a
night-long inspirational event in
honor of the "Shovavim"
repentance period. The participants recited a special series of
Psalms (Tikkun), sang, heard words
of Torah, and more.

In honor of the hearing at
The Hague beginning this Monday, at
which Israel will be put "on trial" for defending itself by building
a wall between its citizens and neighboring terrorists, PA officials have
announced that Monday will be a "Day
of Rage" throughout Judea and Samaria.
A siren will be sounded at noon in
various PA-controlled cities and villages, followed by a one-hour
warning strike. Protest activities will be held throughout the Palestinian
Authority, and school children will
take part in protest marches and other events. Israel's police and
military have received special instructions, and will be closely monitoring
The Hague has announced that the
hearing against Israel's counter-terrorism security barrier hearing
will be transmitted live on the court's website at "http://www.icj-cij.org/".
Palestinian Health Minister
Jawad Tibi came under fire
from masked men from Al Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades in Jenin on Tuesday as he
visited for the opening of a new city hospital. Sources from the
Palestinian Authority’s governing Fatah faction said the shooting was
part of a power struggle
between factions over control of international funding for development
projects. Neither Tibi nor his colleague Mohammad
Shtayyeh, director of the PA Economic Development Council were hurt in
the shooting, but two bystanders were lightly wounded.
All these future political
attempts at some kind of peace plan will all become meaningless when the God
of the Bible demands the time has come to build Ezekiel's Temple on the
Temple Mount! All efforts at giving the Islamic Arab Palestinians a heathen
State of corruption and murder in the middle of the Holy Land will become
useless when their rage overwhelms them at the mention of this coming
mandate from God. No wall, no matter how big could ever prevent an Islamic
invasion of Israel when the Jews obey the God of the Bible at His call to
build! The Road Map according to the Bible is clear! The God of Moses is
about to harden the hearts of Islam as He did the hearts of Pharaoh and the
Egyptians. "Let My People Build" will be God's challenge not just to Islam,
but the entire gentile world.
The Bible is clear
that God has declared a Kingdom is coming to the Holy Land, at Jerusalem,
and on the Temple Mount! He is in the process of challenging all of mankind
with His plan for the future of Israel! The choice is submit, or harden your
heart! The God of the Bible has revealed in the Bible that His standards are
absolute holiness and purity. It is far too high a standard for men to
attain. Yet, God's standards will rule during the coming Kingdom Age.
Mankind will be forced to submit to God's provision for sin if they want to
survive. Ezekiel's Temple will have an altar where blood sacrifice will
again be offered as was done in both the First and Second Temples. It will
be done in remembrance of Calvary. It will be the only place sinful men can
go when they fall short of God's
perfect standards. The
Bible says Ezekiel's Temple will be administered by Jewish Priests. God
plans to restore the Aaronic Priesthood once again. According to the Bible
this coming Kingdom is Jewish through and through. The Biblical Christ will
rule as the King of the Jews. In that day the Jews will acknowledge Him as
their Messiah. Corrupted Christianity like the corrupted Palestinian State
will have no part in what God is about to do in Israel!
All of mankind,
both Jew and gentile, must submit to the God of the Bible, or they will be
judged on the basis of their own hearts. All who can't repent because of a
hard heart will perish. All who will refuse the blood shed at Calvary will
be doomed! There is no other future according to the Bible!

Israel removing part of West Bank

Baka al-Sharkia from the rest of the West Bank, the Jerusalem Post reported.
The action comes one day before a world court hearing on the

prophecy being fulfilled before our eyes? I had always assumed that the
words of Ezekiel meant that the Islamic invasion of Ezekiel 38 & 39 was
going to come upon a Jewish nation lulled into a false feeling of security.
I never contemplated a literal wall would be built, and then taken down.
Only the unfolding of history will prove if the events of today are the very
things Ezekiel was was making reference? I know for a surety that the
invasion of Ezekiel 38 & 39 is a yet future event tied to the end of this
present dispensation, and the beginning of the Kingdom era. I'm also sure
that Biblical Christians should take note.

The rampart fell but the Temple Mount is
By Danny Rubinstein
Collapsed rampart backed
by the Western Wall. Engineers warned 30 years ago that this could happen.
(Pierre Terdjman / Ba)
Any news about the Al-Aqsa Mosque is
immediately highlighted in the Palestinian press. That's what happened last
week with the collapse of part of the northern wall of the rampart that
leads from the southern entrance of the Western Wall up to the Mograbi Gate.
The collapse took place a week ago, some
time after midnight between Saturday and Sunday. Al Quds, the most widely
circulated Palestinian newspaper, wrote in its main headline on Monday that
"the collapse of part of the path in the Al Bureq area is a
renewed warning of the danger
of collapse to the Al-Aqsa Mosque.
Al Bureq was the Prophet Mohammed's
magical horse, which Muslim tradition says Mohammed tied to the
Western Wall. When the Muslims speak of Al-Aqsa Mosque they are actually
referring to all the Temple Mount area. However, in this context it must be
said that there was nothing about the rock slide on the rampart to the
Mograbi Gate that had anything to do with the safety and security of the
walls of the mount plaza and the stability of the buildings on the mount.
The rampart is narrow path built between the prayer plaza of the Western
Wall and the archaeological digs that have been underway for many years by
archaeologists Benjamin Mazar and Meir Ben David. The rampart was made after
the Six-Day War in the wake of the demolition of the Mograbi (Moroccan)
quarter, to make room for the plaza. Most of the Mograbi quarter belonged to
the Waqf of Abu Medein, and a special gate led from the quarter into the
Temple Mount above. In Arabic, there are two gates that carry the name
Mograbi Gate. The first is the gate in the Turkish wall around the city,
Dung Gate, through which one now reaches the
Western Wall and the other is the
gate in the wall of the mount itself, at the top of the rampart that fell.
the neighborhood was demolished in 1967, a few remains were left, mostly
buildings that abutted the wall and the Mograbi Gate. Some
belonged to a well-known Muslim
family, the Abu Sauds, who also were from Mograbi quarter. They are a
very well-known family, not least because one of the daughters,
Zahawa Abu Saud, was Yasser Arafat's
mother. After she died in Cairo in 1933, three-year-old Yasser was
sent for a while to Jerusalem to live in his grandparents' home in the
Mograbi Quarter. To this day, whenever Arafat speaks of his childhood in
Jerusalem he mentions the scenes he remembers of the Jews at the Wall. He
also says that in the summer of 1967, he infiltrated the West Bank from
Jordan, and one day went to Jerusalem to see the bulldozers bringing down
the home of his childhood next to the wall.
The first and largest stage of demolition in the Mograbi Quarter was done
very hastily, immediately at the end of the war, and it was followed by
further stages in which the buildings near the gate were destroyed in 1968
and 1969. There were negotiations with the owners of the buildings near the
gate for compensation, including the Abu Sauds and eventually, all the
residential buildings and a souvenir shop were removed, so that
all that remained was the rampart
built on rubble and ancient remains, leading up to the Mograbi Gate entrance
to the Temple Mount/Al-Aqsa plaza.
The southern side of the rampart faces the archeological dig and is 17
meters high on that side. On the other side, looking north to the Wall, the
rampart is nearly 10 meters high.
Inside there are many empty spaces - cisterns, cellars, tunnels - all
remnants of ancient buildings from the later Muslim period.
More than 30 years ago,
engineers noted that the walls of the footpath up the rampart, which were
used by tourist visitors to the plaza above, were
not firm. The Mograbi Gate
was the only one under complete Israeli control and was used by all the
non-Muslims to reach the plaza. Masses of people, Israelis and foreign, have
passed through it since 1967. Archaeologist Ben Dov says that at the end of
the 1970s, he proposed to Aharon Sarig, then city manager of Jerusalem, and
to the Wakf, the Muslim religious trust, that they buttress the walls of the
rampart on the side facing the archaeological dig. Indeed, that buttress was
built, in cooperation with the Waqf, which as worried about the condition of
the wall in the area of the dig, because above it is the Islamic Museum and
the Mograbi Mosque.
Near the southern corner of
the Western Wall, in the archaeological dig area, is
Robinson's Arch, a remnant of
the entrance to the temple area in the days of Herod. Nearby there are some
cracks and bulges in the wall,
damage from the last major earthquake to hit the Holy Land, in 1927.
The Waqf - with Israeli government help - has conducted over the years
various repairs and rehabilitation of the area.
The Religious Affairs Ministry was responsible for the rampart that
collapsed last week. Its people maintained two small rooms next to the Wall
to serve as shelter for women worshipers when it rained. A small flight of
iron stairs led to the rooms, which had a few chairs inside. The most
important archaeological finding in that corner is a huge rock, at the
lowest part of the Wall, which is partly exposed and partly hidden by the
foundations of the rampart. The rock is the threshold of what the scholars
refer to as Barclay Gate,
named for the American missionary James T. Barclay, who noted it first, in
1848. It is the only gate that remains as it was in the days of Herod and
scholars identify it with Kipponos
Gate, mentioned in the Mishnah as the entrance for gentiles to the Temple
Through that gate, which is sealed, once can reach Al Aqsa plaza, by going
down a few steps next to the wall, and reaching a small room where an
ancient Muslim grave is located. In Arabic this place is known as Bab al
Nebi, and it is the precise place, says Muslim tradition,
where Mohammed tied up his horse Al
In the days of Herod a path rose trough a tunnel from this room to the
temple plaza. That's also how the southern Hulda gates were built, as the
main entrances to the Temple Mount. They were like the tunnel-like entrances
that lead to underground subways nowadays.
The Al-Aqsa plaza is believed to be about three meters lower than the
original Temple Mount plaza, because of the destruction and the
reconstruction that took place, and therefore any
search for remnants of the actual
temple will never yield direct results.
Last Tuesday, Tourism Minister Benny Elon visited the scene to examine the
construction of the supports going up for the southern wall that fell.
The damage was almost
certainly caused by the heavy rains and snow and possibly by the earthquake
that took place a few days earlier. In any case, there is no
connection between the landslide from the rampart, and the state of the
walls and buildings of the Temple Mount.
I'm not so sure the walls
of the Temple Mount are as safe as this author may think? I suspect at some
point the Kotel (Wailing Wall) will be taken down. I'm always sad to see
that the Jewish people of Israel have a wall between where they worship, and
the Temple Mount where they should Biblically worship the God of their
fathers. Some day that psychological and physical barrier must be removed.
My personal feelings are just as the walls of Jericho had to come down so
the Promised Land could be occupied and conquered by Joshua, so also must
the Western Wall come down opening the way for the Jews to enter the Temple
Mount. No wall must be allowed to separate the Jews from their God! The
Temple Mount is the only Biblical site that God has approved for worship to
be conducted by Jews whenever they were allowed sovereignty over the Holy
Land. I doubt this Wailing Wall will be an object of sorrow when God's plan
for the coming Kingdom is realized. The wall coming down opening the way to
the Temple Mount for the building of Ezekiel's Temple will be a day of great
joy. There will never be a need for the Jews of Israel to wail at the foot
of the Temple again!
Dispensational change is what the
God of the Bible is up to in the Holy Land. The only option left open is to
submit or perish. Longsuffering is coming to an end as was always known
would happen. Absolute purity and holiness must rule the Kingdom Age. The
LORD of righteousness must use His rod of iron in demanding His standards be
maintained. The Kingdom age will not suffer mankind to have an opinion
about purity and holiness. It will be a time when perfect purity and
holiness rules. Everything having to do with absolute holiness will be
centered at the Temple Mount, and will radiate out from Ezekiel's Temple.
The old walls which kept men from the holiness of God must come down. New
walls protecting imperfect men from a holt God must be erected. Gates must
be built which will allow men to enter for forgiveness from sin. Blood
sacrifice must again be made prominent as the only way sin can be acceptably
forgiven by a Holy God.
is interesting that the ancient path whereby the gentiles could come to the
Temple to observe the only worship of the God of the Bible that was
authorized should be what collapsed this past week. A provision was
supplied for gentiles to see the truth about blood sacrifice much as the
unsaved today are invited to observe the Lord's Supper, but
not allowed to partake. The next dispensation will have an altar
where blood sacrifice will again be offered for sin, but this altar will be
dedicated in remembrance of Calvary while the altars of the first and second
Temples looked forward to that blessed event. It is sad that the Hollywood
crowd who hate purity more then any other group should
be prominent in presenting the Holy Passion of the Lord Jesus Christ for
profit. The time for dispensational change, and return to Biblical holiness
has arrived! Evangelical Christianity has found a different path of travel
to holiness called Hollywood evangelism! An unholy alliance as ever could be

Payoff for 'Passion'
Churches buying out theaters for Gibson film,
expecting audiences to pack their pews later
February 22, 2004
By TIM TESCONI
THE PRESS DEMOCRAT
Santa Rosa pastor Andy VomSteeg
openly wept watching a
special screening of "The
Passion of the Christ" in Los Angeles, saying the
film will not
only pack theaters but church pews as people seek
to know more about the life and death of Jesus.
Hollywood superstar Mel
Gibson's controversial film depicting the final hours of Christ's
life, which opens Wednesday in Sonoma County theaters, already is
provoking deep debate, passionate discussion and religious posturing,
discourse that is playing out across the nation.
The storm over the movie was
the cover story of last week's Newsweek magazine, which explored
the battle between those who think the
film unfairly blames Jews for
Jesus' death and those focused on the graphic portrayal
of Jesus' agonizing crucifixion.
Jewish leaders in Sonoma County are taking a wait-and-see approach.
But many Christian groups
already are stating their opinion through ticket sales in advance of the
opening this week.
"We already have 10 sold-out shows at the Airport Cinema and the
movie doesn't open until Wednesday. There's tremendous interest," said
Dan Tocchini, owner of the Airport and Roxy theaters in Santa Rosa.
"Churches are buying out a theater auditorium and then
using it as a
pulpit to talk about the movie," Tocchini said.
Even the small Rialto Cinemas Lakeside theater, known for its foreign
films, has sold $6,800 worth of tickets for "The Passion of the Christ."
Nationwide, $10 million in
advance tickets have been sold.
"This is unheard of,"
said Ky Boyd, co-owner of the Rialto. He said what's puzzling is that
the movie is rated R for its violence and bloodshed. And the dialog is
in Latin and Aramaic, with English subtitles.
"The fact that it's getting this huge interest across the board is
just amazing," Boyd said.
For Christians, the
passion, which means "having suffered" in Latin, and the resurrection of
Christ are the foundations of their faith.
The powerful yet disturbing
$25 million film has been praised by religious leaders from Pope John
Paul II to the Rev. Billy Graham, who said the film "is a lifetime
of sermons in one movie."
VomSteeg also called it powerful and emotionally moving.
"I went into this thinking it's just Hollywood but when the movie
ended the only thing you could hear was the
weeping. I was among
those moved to tears," he
said, after joining 1,500
religious leaders at a Jan. 5 screening hosted by Gibson
in Southern California.
VomSteeg, pastor of the New Vintage Church in Santa Rosa, believes
the movie will make people want to know more about Jesus Christ,
leading to a
surge in Christianity. He is sending out
10,000 postcards this
week inviting people who have questions after seeing the film to
come to his church.
"Go see the movie in theaters, then join us to explore the claims,"
reads the postcard.
Other churches have scheduled discussion sessions to explore the
movie's message, which goes to the roots of Christianity and the nature
of the Christian faith.
"After seeing this movie people will be coming to church and we'd
better be ready to answer their questions," VomSteeg said.
Sam Tillery, pastor of Santa Rosa's Foothills Community Church and
president of the Pastors Prayer Fellowship, a group of
80 churches, said many ministers
are encouraging their congregations to see and discuss the movie.
"We're united in the thrust of how
we can work together to
make the most of our people soaking it in," Tillery said.
The red flags always go up
when religious blind passion rules the day. I know the anti-Semitism within
a large portion of the Roman Catholic Church is already bulging out,
especially in Europe. I know the presents of the Jews in the Holy Land
destroys the Roman Catholic doctrine of replacement theology, and makes the
Christ of the Pope who gave the Church this theology the look of a fool.
Nothing is going to raise this blind passionate rage to burst out on the
world more then this movie he is now releasing on the world. He knows he
does not need to say a word (his father has already said it all) against the
Jews to achieve the inevitable results. It is no wonder the Jews are
skeptical of what the cost will be to them because of this release. Imagine
the results should God give the mandate to build His last Jewish Temple,
which the Bible is absolutely clear is coming, while Christian blind passion
is at an all time high? Apostate Christianity will make Islamic
passions look like a little thing as they release their hate on the spoilers
of their long sought false theological ends. The battle is on for the
Apostate Christian Kingdom, or the Biblical Jewish Kingdom!
I'm so saddened at how gullible
the main stream Evangelical Church has been. They were so quickly sucked
into following another Christ. The Christ of the Elmer Gantry type
Charismatics has been acceptable to this hot nor cold Church for some forty
years now. A generation has grown up with hardly a word of warning, but
rather have witnessed cooperation. The Apostate Roman Catholic Church has
been entwined in this movement from the beginning. Holiness has a new
definition to this generation. It means Charismatic passion, and no longer
purity. It is how you feel, not what is your testimony. The balance is
shifting fast. The glory of God has been reduced to Mel Gibson's acting
prowess. Forget about his personal testimony. What Biblical Church or
organization would have him teach their children about his personal Christ?
The holy testimony of those who represented the Lord Jesus Christ can now be
brushed back with the new popularity of Hollywood Evangelism.
Elmer Gantry step
Evangelicals have followed the
Christs of the Bakkers and Swaggarts. As each fell from grace they then
flocked to the Christ of Benny Hinn and others. Pat Robertson's Christ who
gives him phony words of knowledge is a favorite enduring Christ. The
Apostate Roman Catholic Church was and remains intertwined among all these
Christs. Now the Mel Gibson Christ is new on the scene for the gullible to
flock toward with their support. Only the Jews are protesting with any
strong voice of warning. They know more then this lukewarm Church what will
be the end of The Passion.
I remember "I Found It." The first
effort at this kind of mass evangelism. I challenge anyone to prove what I
have to say is wrong! "I Found It" was the only evangelistic outreach where
there was thorough follow up on the results. Bill Bright stopped seeking
follow up records afterwards. No conservative Evangelical Church
showed any growth other then their normal outreach produced. Only the Roman
Catholic Church experience a surge in growth. I would challenge every pastor
who compromises with the Mel Gibson Christ to keep the records! Let the real
truth come out from those who will follow this Christ! I place before you a
simple question. Is this Christ of Mel Gibson a false Christ??? Are you so
pure you can outsmart, and use Satan to your own advantage?
Where are they?
The Mel Gibson Christ

Morocco Earthquake Toll Likely to Top 300
Feb 24, 8:58 AM (ET)
By ALI NAJI
RABAT, Morocco (AP) - A
powerful earthquake struck northern Morocco early Tuesday,
toppling houses and killing at
least 300 people, local authorities said. Many of the victims
were women, children, and the elderly.
The quake shook rural areas near the Mediterranean city of Al Hoceima,
and there was deep concern about three outlying villages - Ait Kamra,
Tamassint and Imzourn - where 30,000 people live in mud structures
unable to withstand such an earthquake.
The quake struck at 2:27 a.m.
when most people would have been asleep.
"If we take into account the 140 people already killed in Al Kamra,
we believe that the toll will rise to more than 300," a spokesman for
village authorities told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity.
According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the 6.5-magnitude quake was
centered 100 miles northeast of
Fez, about a mile below the Mediterranean Sea bed.
The death toll climbed steadily throughout the day as rescuers
reached hard-hit areas. Military and civilian rescuers were dispatched
to help survivors and search for victims trapped under rubble, while
helicopters filled with emergency supplies were preparing for takeoff.
However, rescuers reported difficulties in reaching the affected
area, located in the foothills of the Rif Mountains and served by bad
A 4.1-magnitude aftershock hit near Al Hoceima at 11:04 a.m.,
according to the official MAP news agency. It quoted the geophysical
laboratory of the National Scientific and Technical Research Center.
physician at Mohammed V hospital in Al-Hoceima told French television
station LCI that there were "many deaths and many injured."
"Most of the injured have broken bones," he said. "Houses collapsed.
It was a very, very violent jolt."
Another physician at the hospital told The Associated Press on
condition of anonymity that hundreds of people were injured and that he
expected the death toll to go to at least 200.
Al-Hoceima is the largest city in northern Morocco and is populated
by Berbers. The region suffers from extreme poverty and underdevelopment
and has been neglected by the
government for decades following a rebellion in 1960.
The local economy is sustained by fishing and by farmers who grow
U.S. Geological Survey spokesman Butch Kinerney said the earthquake's
strength and depth could lead to damage along the coasts. He said the
quake would likely be felt up to
200 miles away in Algeria.
The quake - which reverberated across the
Strait of Gibraltar - was
felt across much of southern Spain, but no damage or injuries were
reported. News reports said it was most noticed in tall apartment blocks
of southern Andalucia and southeast Murcia. The quake was also felt in
the Spanish North African
enclave of Melilla.
An unrelated temblor Monday evening shook the Alps region in
southeast France. No injuries or damage were reported.
The last large earthquake to hit the area measured 6.0 and struck in
1994. But Morocco's
deadliest earthquake was in
1960, when 15,000 people were killed after a devastating quake
shook the southern city of Agadir and surrounding regions.
The last time a major earthquake battered
North Africa was on May
21, 2003, when more than 2,200 people were killed and 10,000 injured
after a temblor devastated northern Algeria.
Earthquakes and wars have
been continuous ever since the Biblical Lord Jesus Christ uttered these
words about the beginnings of the time of sorrows. The difference today is
that these earthquakes, and wars are taking place when the Jews have taken
back the sovereignty of the Holy Land for a third miraculous time. The words
of Jesus were aimed at the Jews who lived in the Holy Land, and were put on
hold for almost 2000 years. Today, they are resurrected because the Jews are
back! These words have a literal application as never before.
The words of Ezekiel have a
resurrected relevancy in light of the return of the Jews. All of North
Africa received a wake up call with this latest earthquake. Ezekiel
specifically narrows in on North Africa as being the Southern prong of a
three pronged Islamic invasion of the Holy Land. The invasion of Ezekiel 38
& 39 becomes as if the words were just recently uttered now that the Jews
The lukewarm Church of today has
lost the drive to do the hard work of preaching the gospel message with a
Biblical testimony. They turn to Mel Gibson to be their missionary. I
personally know of a fundamental missionary family of 12 who ate peanut
butter sandwiches for a month because it was the only food they had. They
would not quit. They are still out on the mission field. Imagine how they
and their fellow missionaries could use all the Christian money Mel Gibson
will gain from his Hollywood movie? Christian money continues being
siphoned off by Satan manipulating the gullible lukewarmers of this
generation. Those who do the real job sorrow needlessly while the rich get
richer. I might add while the foolish get even foolisher following the likes
of Benny Hinn and the whole Charismatic crowd, or at minimum give the wink
to all the hijinks. Will Mel
Gibson's movie drive one Christian from the
Apostate Roman Catholic Church?
Every fundamental missionary has at least one testimony of a Roman Catholic
who was saved, and has become the biggest critic of the Church that kept him
blind to the truth. Will this movie drive one Christian from the Pat
Robertson Christ who gives him those phony words of knowledge every day on
the 700 Club program? The fundamental missionaries I know have all stood
against this popular Charismatic movement that is destroying Biblical
doctrine, and leading the way into a Christianity that is neither cold or
The time is right for sorrows as the
Biblical Christ looks upon the Laodicean Church of these last days of the
Church Age. The words of Christ have never been so relevant as they are
today. We begin to move from one dispensation to another. The time is right
to read the words of Christ rather then go into the pornographer's dens of
iniquity to watch another phony Hollywood Christ!
The Last Church of the Church Age
14 And unto the angel of the
church of the Laodiceans write;
These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of
the creation of God;

would thou wert cold or hot.

rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that
the shame of thy

with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.

overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.

Study: Priests Accused of Abuse Since 1950
— A panel of prominent Roman
Catholics rebuked U.S. bishops Friday for failing to stop
widespread clerical sex abuse
over the last half-century, calling the leaders' performance
"shameful to the church." The top American bishop pledged that the
church's mistakes will never be repeated.
"The terrible history recorded here today is history," said Bishop
Wilton Gregory (search),
president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (search
The exchange came as the National Review Board, a
lay watchdog panel formed by the bishops, issued two highly anticipated
studies documenting the molestation problem from 1950 to 2002.
One report is the first church-sanctioned tally of
abuse cases: It found there have been
10,667 abuse claims over
those 52 years. More than
80 percent of the alleged victims were male and over half said
they were between ages 11 and 14 when they were assaulted. ....
advocates immediately decried the figures as low. "Thousands of victims
haven't reported and dozens of bishops aren't telling all they know,"
said David Clohessy, national director of the Survivors Network of
those Abused by Priests (search
). "They have no incentive to."
The second review-board report examines the causes
of the molestation crisis and puts much of the blame on American bishops
for not cracking down on errant priests.
"This is a failing not simply on the
part of the priests who sexually abused minors but also on the
part of those bishops and
other church leaders who did not act effectively to preclude that abuse
in the first instance," the review board said.
"These leadership failings have been shameful to
"How can we question a call
from god?" is a quote I heard from one
of the Bishops who approves men for the Roman Catholic Priesthood. The
compromised criteria is abstinence not homosexuality. It is not a Biblical
criteria for anything, and is the main reason why the Catholic Church has
been so shamefully exposed. The entire society is now being asked to approve
homosexual marriage. The end will be the same kind of shameful exposior that
the Roman Catholics are now experiencing.
Dispensational change is about
forcing Biblical righteousness onto planet earth. The Bible is clear
homosexuality is willful sinful behavior, not genetic abnormality. There
will be no place for homosexuals to hide when the God of the Bible judges.
Eternal condemnation in the agony of hell is where everyone of these
predators will find as their end when the only Holy God makes His
decree. There will never be a place for this kind of behavior in the coming
The Passion movie has done an
excellent job with exposing the Jewish priesthood for sin during the days
when Christ walked on planet earth. The Bible says He is coming again! This
time it is the Christian priesthood being exposed for having failed God.
This time the mob is being manipulated by the Roman Catholic Christ
to what end I do not know?
Thousands and thousands of Evangelical pastors bought into the lie that this
movie portrays only the Biblical account. I'm told there is a serpent in the
form of Satan lingering around the scene. Where is that in the Bible? I'm
also told there are Roman Catholic gargoyle type creatures running around.
Where is that in the Bible? I'm told all the "good" woman are dressed like
Catholic nuns. Where is that in the Bible? It was a lie
promoted by the prince of lies
for the gullible Evangelical priesthood. It is by the subtle lies that most
of Christianity has become blind. Pastors want an easy way to do the hard
work of teaching. They are willing to make unholy alliances with the
homosexuality/pornography capital rather then doing the hard work of
righteous teaching and living. The Bible tells us to be separated from the
world unto holiness. The reason is because we are not smart enough to out
manipulate Satan. The Jewish priesthood thought it could, the Roman Catholic
priesthood thought it could, and now the Evangelicals think they can?
Compromise has never worked before, and it will not work with "The Passion"
It is a corrupted Christianity that will be
lifted out at the rapture. A shameful removal so God can establish Biblical
righteousness on planet earth with His chosen people. The time is right. The
Roman Catholic Christ of "The Passion" may be the proof?
How can we discern the Biblical Christ
from the false Christs?
"How can we question a call from god?"

21 I will go down now, and see whether they have done altogether according
to the cry of it, which is come unto me; and if not, I will know.
22 And the men turned their faces from thence, and went toward Sodom: but
Abraham stood yet before the LORD.
23 And Abraham
drew near, and said, Wilt thou also destroy the righteous with the wicked?
24 Peradventure there be fifty righteous within the city: wilt thou also
not spare the place for the fifty righteous that are therein?
25 That be far from thee to do after this manner, to slay the righteous with
the wicked: and that the righteous should be as the wicked, that be far from
thee: Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?
26 And the LORD said, If I find in Sodom fifty righteous within the city,
then I will spare all the place for their sakes.
27 And Abraham answered and said, Behold now, I have taken upon me to speak
unto the Lord, which am but dust and ashes:
28 Peradventure there shall
lack five of the fifty righteous: wilt thou destroy all the
city for lack of five? And he said, If I find
there forty and five, I will not destroy it.
29 And he spake unto him yet again, and said, Peradventure there shall be
forty found there. And he said, I will not do it for

Peradventure there shall thirty be found there. And he said, I will not do

shall be twenty found there. And
he said, I will not destroy it for twenty's sake.

ten shall be found there. And he
said, I will not destroy it for ten's sake.
33 And the LORD went his way, as soon as he had left
communing with Abraham: and Abraham returned unto his place.

7 And he said unto me, Son of man, the
place of my throne,
and the place
of the soles of my feet, where
I will dwell in the

Temple Mount makes the headlines once more as the God of the Bible forces
His will on planet earth. It is God who miraculously brought the Jews back
to the Holy Land this third time. It is God who hardens the hearts of the
Islamic Arab Palestinians so the whole world can witness the truth of their
wickedness. God is determined to usher in the Kingdom dispensation, which
will culminate in the building of the last Jewish Temple on the Temple
Mount. The Islamic Arab Palestinians have taken the lead in opposing God's
plan. They have turned themselves into the lowest form of animalistic
behavior in order to resist the irresistible. Their hearts have hardened to
their own destruction rather then yield to God's eternal plan. It is the
Temple Mount that is center to the conflict. It is the return of the Lord
Jesus Christ that the last Jewish Temple represents. It is the Bible, or the
Koran that is at stake in the final disposition of the Temple Mount.
The battle is only
beginning. Soon, it will envelop the entire planet. Mankind is being forced
to reveal what is really in the heart. Is it so hardened it will never
submit to the God of the Bible, and His single provision for sin through the
Lord Jesus Christ? The choice like salvation is very simple, but the
hardness of the human heart is very great. The final sin is resisting God to
the end. The end is in the rejection of the Lord Jesus Christ who sacrificed
Himself so your sin could be cleansed. To reject this greatest gift given
freely through love to any who will ask is the greatest revelation of a
hardened heart that could ever be demonstrated.
This Temple Mount is the
stumbling block placed before this generation by God Himself. Ezekiel's
Temple is the end intended. Only Ezekiel's Temple has a throne! It is there
that the Jewish Messiah/King shall sit administering His Kingdom. Ezekiel's
Temple will also have an altar where blood sacrifice will be accepted in
remembrance of Calvary. Jewish priests are clearly designated as the ones
who will minister. Only the single sacrifice of the Lord Jesus Christ is the
Biblical solution for sin, and not just Islam must submit to this truth. The
entire world must also choose throughout the coming millennium to either
receive, or reject His sacrifice of blood.
40:1 In the
five and twentieth year of our captivity, in
the beginning of the year, in the tenth day of the month, in the fourteenth
year after that the city was smitten, in the
selfsame day the hand
of the LORD was upon me, and brought me thither.
2 In the
visions of God brought he me into the land of Israel,
and set me upon a very high mountain, by which was as the frame of a city on
3 And he brought me thither, and, behold, there was
whose appearance was like the appearance of brass, with a line of flax
in his hand,
and a measuring reed; and he stood in the gate.
4 And the man said unto me,
Son of man, behold with thine eyes, and hear with thine ears,
and set thine heart upon all that I shall shew thee;
for to the intent that I might shew them unto thee art thou brought hither:
that thou seest to the house of Israel.
5 And behold a wall on the outside of the house round about, and in the
man's hand a measuring reed of six cubits long by the cubit and an hand
breadth: so he measured the breadth
of the building,
one reed; and the height, one reed.
6 Then came he unto the gate which looketh toward the east, and went up the
stairs thereof, and measured the threshold of the gate, which was one reed
broad; and the other threshold of the gate, which was one reed broad.
7 And every little chamber was one reed long, and one reed broad; and
between the little chambers were five cubits; and the threshold of the gate
by the porch of the gate within was one reed.
8 He measured also the porch of the gate within, one reed.
9 Then measured he the porch of the gate, eight cubits; and the posts
thereof, two cubits; and the porch of the gate was inward.
10 And the little chambers of the gate eastward were three on this side, and
three on that side; they three were of one measure: and the posts had one
measure on this side and on that side. ......
18 And he said unto me, Son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD; These are the
the altar in the day when they shall make it,
to offer burnt offerings thereon, and
to sprinkle blood
19 And thou shalt give to
the priests the Levites that be
of the seed of

take of the blood thereof, and put it on the four horns
of it, and on the four corners of the settle, and upon the border round
about: thus shalt thou
cleanse and purge it.
21 Thou shalt take the bullock also of
the sin offering, and
he shall burn it in the appointed place of the house, without the sanctuary.
11:1 And there was
given me a reed like unto a rod:
and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and
measure the temple of
God, and the altar, and them that worship
2 But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not;
for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under
foot forty and two months.

thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.
4 These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before
the God of the earth.
